Market-leading systems for large retail stores and public spaces

One of the challenges of managing a busy shopping mall, airport, department store, or any other large retail outlet, is identifying both hotspots and areas for improvement. Overall traffic counting data might be strong – but are people concentrated in one zone, or are they moving through different ones? Are some more popular at certain times of year and what can you do to capitalize on seasonal increases?

We will install cameras at the entrance of each zone you want to monitor to capture traffic data and dwell time.

By comparing this with traffic and dwell time data for the store, you’ll quickly see whether customers are attracted to one department more than another, and deploy staff to these areas during peak times. The technology can also be used to find out how successful a brand concession is in department stores, airports and malls.

Discreet and unobtrusive, the cameras are installed on the ceiling and cover large zones. Our analysts take this data and present it in a way that allows you to make impactful decisions about store layout, product displays and signage.
